Shakti Kapoor’s son Siddhanth Kapoor has been offered a role in Bejoy Nambiar’s next film which, reportedly, is an official remake of the Tamil film Chennai 600028. Bejoy Nambiar is an acclaimed short-film maker who made his directoral venture into feature films with the 2011 movie Shaitan.
This untitled film is a sports comedy and it will be produced by Dar Motion Pictures and will star Siddhanth Kapoor in a lead role for the first time. The actor’s first screen presence was the movie Shootout At Wadala.
“Siddhanth has been assisting Priyadarshan for years. He has worked with him in films like Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Bhagam Bhaag and Chup Chup Ke. When Siddhanth learnt that Bejoy is planning to make this film, he called him and expressed a desire to be a part of it. Siddhanth has played cricket at a state level and the film is about street cricket. He auditioned for the film and was later signed,” said a source.
Bejoy confirmed the story and said Siddhanth has already started shooting for the film.
